    I first read this book maybe 40 years ago, and was not very impressed with it. But recently I read other comments from St. Nicholas Cabasilas that impressed me and caused me to want to read this one again. But I had a similar reaction to my first reading. I just didn't find it full of insight. It is interesting to see that to a large extent the Liturgy as St. Nicholas knew it in his day is the same as we do today. There are a few trivia kinds of things one can learn by comparing what he knew as I first read this book maybe 40 years ago, and was not very impressed with it.

    A beautiful treatise on the theology and form of the Orthodox Divine Liturgy as it was in the 14th century. I spent a lot of time comparing it to the theology of the Tridentine and Novus Ordo Mass, and it contributed much to my conversion to Orthodox Christianity. I think it is very important for one interested in serious study of Liturgics, and it is an excellent foundation for one starting his journey in the liturgical theology of the Orthodox Church.

    A beautiful exposition on the heavenly banquet by St. Nicholas Cabasilas. Truly a treasure for those who wish to understand the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.

    An important and significant theological examination of the Eastern Orthodox Divine Liturgy, by the fourteenth-century theologian, NIcholas Cabasilas.

    A 14th century commentary on the Divine liturgy a lot of illustrative symbolism, this book is great around but especially for liturgical history and mystical participation in the service.
